PenAgain Review and Giveaway


I'm constantly writing, whether it's in my journal, pre-writing a review for this blog, or writing poetry so I know the importance of having a really great pen. So, when I was given the opportunity to review some great pens and pencils from PenAgain I had to jump on it!
PenAgain sent me 2 pens and some pencils.
The first product I used was the Twist 'n Write pencil.
The Twist 'n Write pencil is specifically designed to be used by smaller hands. Since I do not have any children I tested them out myself. The 2 mm pencil lead makes writing last longer and it's very comfortable. It's designed like a wishbone to provide extra comfort and to help children write the "correct" way.

I then went on to try the ErgoSleek pen. The ErgoSleek PenAgain has a wonderful metal finish and the rubber grip makes it super comfortable to write with.  I REALLY love the fact that you can refill these pens because once you find the perfect pen you want to keep it for as long as possible. The ErgoSleek makes writing fun and less tiring because it takes the pressure off of your fingers.

The last product I tried from PenAgain was the Ergo-Sof pen.
I loved the Ergo-Sof pen because it has a soft rubber coating and seems to make your writing flow as easy as water. It took all the cramping out of my fingers! These pens are also refillable.

Why you should try PenAgain products:
-They are comfortable
-They improve your writing habits
-They cause less tension while writing
-They are refillable

  6. this sounds really cool. I learned that they designed it for the human hand, unlike other pens. It may feel weird at first, but then tension will melt away.

  10. Cool product! Thanks for the chance for this interesting giveaway - I'm trying to journal more (like, pen and paper as opposed to computer typing), but I always get calluses and pain in my hand and fingers, so I really wanna try this pen!

    I learned that they designed the pen so you DON'T grip it, which is crazy! So naturally, I want to try it lol. :) ~ ABrainEnamored (AT) gmail (DOT) com

  14. The human hand dictates the design. Even though it may feel strange, try to resist the urge to grip the pen with your fingers. Just let your hand relax, and let the weight of your hand hold the pen in place. You'll feel tension of writing melt away.

    I so like this idea....my College Girl would love having the writing cramp go away!
